Chapters 10 and 11
Once you know what you have gotten wrong find out why and learn it
Understand the meaning of photosynthesis and respiration
What are the chemicals involved?
Understand that plants and animals respire only plants photosynthesize
(this is why plants are called producers)
Know that: sugar is the important material that stores energy from the sun
Plants clean the air of CO2 during photosynthesis
Plants and animals release CO2 when they respire
Water vapor is released during respiration
Transpiration is the act where water vapor goes into the atmosphere and enters the water cycle from a living thing (biotic)
Water vapor entering the atmosphere from an abiotic place (lake, ocean, stream) is called evaporation
Photosynthesis and respiration are sort of opposites of each other study them to see why
Lock the facts of wind into your bank- your mind its formation is an important concept and that knowledge will help later
Simply put the picture on 289 of the text is really clear and a good visual!
Look at the picture and read the words make the connection, learn it.
Section 3 of this Chapter is really important some is review but it puts all the info together
There is more for Chap 10 but lets look over Chap 11 for now
System a group of parts that work together to make a whole functioning thing remember we studied the system in the cafeteria and defined its parts?
Ecosystem groups of organisms (many populations) interacting with each other and their environment (the biotic and abiotic working together)
This is looked thru the flow of energy and the use and reuse (cycling and recycling of matter materials)
To be continued enough for one day
